What starts as a standard spooky story set in a creepy caravan park becomes both more convoluted and more interesting as it goes on. The story twists and turns with a nice balance of story and character and by the end, becomes quite gripping. Although the resolution is a bit of a cheat, the final note ends the story on a spine-tingling high.

My feeling with this release is that the first two episodes were too heavy on atmosphere and too light on plot. Certainly character and setting were well established, but the writer was so determined to "show" us that the story was spooky rather than "tell" us that the plot did not advance. There were long stretches of wandering around between key story reveals.

Then, when we reached the end of episode two, we have a major plot development that makes the story far more interesting and the cliff hanger leaves the listener asking what is going on.

Throughout the story, both Flip and Connie are eager to move on and get home. They both sound like the doctor has dragged them into one adventure too many. This adds to the tension of the episode. The problem is that the slow reveal of story means that we are a long way into the story before the Doctor has motivation to investigate. The story does become good, but it takes time to get there.

Outstanding experience.

Scary, spooky, suspenseful and enjoyable.

The story is very well structured and full of many great ‘triggers of intrigue’ to keep you interested and wanting to know more. It is truly an outstanding piece of writing and direction. The music and sound effects are amazing.

Overall, one of if not my favourite Monthly Main Release story this year and that’s saying something as the Range has been brilliant this year. I’m really glad I had a subscription, I love waiting in expectation for the titles to appear in my iOS App to download. I especially enjoy the extra gems you get - like the subscriber only short trips (they’ve been extraordinary good this year).

Anyhow, if your unsure which Main Release story to try and you like spooky, horror stylised stories, you couldn’t go wrong with “Static”.

A fantastic play, well executed in every regard.
